Top Ten Tuesday, as always, is hosted at my other blog — The Broke & the Bookish
This week’s topic: Top Ten Best/Worst Movie Adaptations
I limited my best & worst book to movie adaptation list to ones I’ve read the book for. I have seen a few movies without realizing they were books first and they could totally been on my best adaptation list but decided to do it this one. I am so excited to see your picks because I know some of my best have been adaptations others have hated and some of my worst I know some people LOVE.
Perks of Being A Wallflower: One of my favorite books and the movie was PERFECT.
The Hunger Games: Sure there were things that I wished were different about the movie but overall I was really pleased with it!
Fight Club: One of my favorite movies ever.
Everything Is Illuminated: I actually watched the movie before I read the book interestingly enough. I actually think I liked the movie better but I really did love the book.
Water For Elephants: I know some people thought this adaptation was terrible I brought the gritty circus scene I pictured to life really well.
The Time Traveler’s Wife: I reallyyy loved the book and I thought the movie just meh. A friend I watched it with, who had never seen the movie, thought it was confusing and boring and couldn’t really feel the love between them.
Twilight: Ok, hear me out. I thought the other movies got better but the first one? TERRIBLE and awkward lol
Never Let Me Go: Considering the fact I loved this book and how much the movie trailer affected me I would have thought I loved this one.
Eat Pray Love: I know a lot of people hated this book to begin with but not me! I really loved the book and thought the movie didn’t do it any justice.
The Lightning Thief: MEH.
So tell me…what are some great book to movie adaptations I NEED to see?? Have you seen any of these? Disagree with any of my picks?? 🙂
